EXCLUSIVE: Roy Moore's lead over Doug Jones increases in new poll

(RNN) - A new Raycom News Network Senate Election poll conducted by Strategy Research finds Republican Roy Moore increasing his lead over Democrat Doug Jones with a week until the special election.

The exclusive poll of 3,200 likely Alabama voters finds if the election were held today, Moore would receive 50% of the vote to Jones with 43%. Four percent of the respondents remain undecided while three percent indicated plans to Write-In a candidate.

The margin of error of the survey conducted Monday night is +/- two percentage points (more on the way the poll was conducted can be found at the end of the story).

The new poll suggests Moore has regained some support after a dip in a November 21st RNN poll that showed a statistical tie between Moore and Jones. The November 21st poll followed 12 days of controversy surrounding allegations that Moore had pursued some teenage girls either sexually or romantically in the late 1970’s when he was in his 30’s and working as an assistant prosecutor in Etowah County. Moore has denied the allegations.

Among party lines, three of every four respondents (75%) who identified as typical Republican voters said they would vote for Moore. Twelve percent of Republican voters said they would vote for Jones if the election were held today. Eighty-seven percent of Democrats said they would vote for Jones.

“We’re polling on a regular basis internally and it’s showing our lead to be about the same thing. It’s growing,” Moore campaign chairman Bill Armistead said in response to the poll results.

The Jones campaign had not immediately provided a statement at the time this story was published.

Strategy Research pollster Jon Gray said Moore’s support seems to have stabilized.

“A lot of momentum coming in on Roy Moore’s side,” Gray said. “I think we’re starting to see a change in the vote from a few weeks ago when Roy Moore was really losing Republicans across the board.”

The winner of the December 12th election will complete the term of former Sen. Jeff Sessions, who left the Senate in February to serve as U.S. Attorney General. The term ends in 2020.

About the poll

The statewide telephone poll of 3,200 was conducted Monday night between 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Those questioned were identified as active registered voters who participated in either the 2016 General Election for president or the 2017 primary for the Alabama Senate seat and must have said "yes" when asked about plans to vote in the December 12th special election. Fifty-nine percent identified themselves as typically voting in the Republican primary and 33% identified themselves as typical Democrat primary voters. Eight percent considered themselves as independent or not typically voting in party primaries. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus two percentage points.

Wow. 3200 polled that is a Yuge sample.
And that is before Trumps full hearted endorsement and the
RNC getting back in the game.

Onward to victory Judge Moore!

THIS SIMPLY CANNOT BE TRUE!!

CNn has been repeating the Gravis Poll that has Jones leading by 4, with a HUGE Democrat oversample, all night long.

Jeff Flake’s $100 donation to Jones should be good for another point or two added to Moore’s lead.

Indeed, and since CNN expects Jones to win, if he doesn’t we can be sure its because of Russian interference in another election.

I want to see the look on the faces of the Turtle and Senator Flake, who donated $100 to the Doug Jones campaign, when Senator Moore is sworn into office. A couple of scumbag RINOs who cried on Election Night in 2016.

It is going to be nowhere near as close as this poll suggests.

A blowout is coming.

Roy picks up ALL of the undecided who are NOT undecided and gets the 57/43 I have predicted for a month.

Expect a “bombshell revelation” on the eve of the election. Something unprovable but devastating; something for which Moore will not have time to effectively refute.

That’s how these weasels operate.

Expect the Alabama voters not to believe any such “bombshell revelation.”
